    Trouble Installing Mobile Intel HD Graphics 3000 driver


      I am using a HP dv7tqe running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with a  Mobile Intel HD Graphics 3000 version 8.830.6.2000 according to the  device manager, but according to the Intel Graphics and  Media Control Panel.


      I am trying to install the update found here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20035&ProdId=3231&lang=eng&OSVersion=Windows%207%2C%2032-bit*&DownloadType=Drivers in order to fix a problem similar to this: http://www.frictionalgames.com/forum/thread-8704-page-3.html


      The Intel HD Graphics 3000 does not seem to properly support OpenGL (2.1?) properly with Amnesia The Dark Descent or Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath. The .2361 update apparently fixes these issues, so I'd like to have it.


      However it says that the driver package is not validated for my system, though the documentation for the package says otherwise.


      First I tried using the automatic driver update utility in the Device Manager, but the Device Manager Update Driver utility seems to think that my 8.830.6.2000 is the latest driver. Then I tried the following:


      Through the device manager tried to manually install this zip http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3231&DwnldID=20036&ProductFamily=Graphics&ProductLine=Laptop+graphics+controllers&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+HD+Graphics&DownloadType=Drivers&OSFullname=Windows+7%2c+32-bit*&lang=eng through following these instructions http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-029635.htm but that does not work either.


      HP does not seem to have the driver, their latest seems to be http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-93993-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en


      I'm not quite sure I'm even trying to install the right drivers. I just don't know what to do from here; I'd really just like to be able to play my games.
